Relating to the establishment of the Texas youth livestock show grant program.
The fiscal implications cannot be determined because the amounts and timing of any appropriations, gifts, grants, and donations are unknown.
HB 3959 would require the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) to establish the Texas Youth Livestock Show Grant Program to provide grants to youth livestock shows in the State of Texas. The bill would also create the Texas Youth Livestock Show Fund as an account in the general revenue fund to be administered by the office of the governor for the purposes of making grants to support youth livestock shows.
Texas Action opposes HB 3959 as it is not the proper role of state government to subsidize youth livestock shows. This is a function better left to private industry and nonprofit charitable organizations.
